Hushpuppi didn’t know $14.7m Malta bank heist was crime = 11 years

Ramon Abbas, known as Hushpuppi, has been jailed for more than 11 years and ordered to pay some $2.2m in compensation to his victims. Ghaleb Alaumary, 36, was also jailed for 11 years last year by a California court. Ramon Abbas told a U.S. court that he didn't know that his $14.7m Malta bank heist was a scam. He claimed he provided bank account information to “old friend”, Ghaleb Alaumary, who unknown to him, was a bank heist mastermind. Abbas said returning to Nigeria after his sentence would be problematic. His role in the indictment of Abba Kyari, Nigeria’s most-celebrated cop, has put him at grave risk of being harmed he says. Abbas's multinational conspiracy returned him millions between 2019 and 2020.
